My Fall Reading List // Blogtober Day #5

Hey everyone!

Does anyone else feel like wrapping themselves in a warm blanket, lighting a candle, dimming the lights and just reading? I feel like October brings on that mood for me. Maybe it’s because of the rainy days or the colder weather but I just need a book to warm up my soul haha.

I thought I would share with you guys my fall reading list. I know you guys love my posts about my reading lists so why not do one for fall? I don’t have a big list because I have a lot of books I have to read for school so have to keep my expectations low for this fall. Hopefully, I will be able to read more books, but I don’t think I will be able to. I have four books to share with you guys that I will be reading for the next 2 months.

Cordially Invited by Zoe Sugg

Fellow blogger Zoe Sugg has just came out with a housewarming book. I think that’s what it’s called. It’s all about the seasons and how to throw the best party and decorate your home and other little bits and bobs. I love these kinds of books. I will be honest and say I have a few of them. I was so excited when she announced that she was coming out with this book. I made the error of pre-ordering the book. I pre-ordered it thinking I would get it for the day of the release. Nope. I still haven’t gotten it yet. The book came out the 3rd and yup I’m still waiting for it. According to my tracking information, it hasn’t even been shipped yet. Trust me, I have ordered a lot of things through Amazon and I am not impressed not one bit. Usually, they have better service than this. Regardless I will be devouring this book when I get it.

Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

I’ve been really wanting to re-read these books for a long time. For whatever reason when I think of fall and books the first thing that pops into my head is Harry Potter. I have a feeling because the beginning of each book kind of starts with fall. I also find Harry Potter to be such a comforting book. There is just something so magical when you read the Harry Potter series that is hard to explain. I just love being in the world that is Harry Potter. I also own all of them. I got them for my birthday a few years back. My boyfriend also owns all of them and just so happened to have the same set as I did. So, we technically have two copies of the books. Now that is hoarding at its best. I can’t get rid of books, by the way, it’s an actual problem. Maybe I should film a bookshelf tour soon? Would that be something you guys would want to see? Anyways back on topic. If you haven’t read any of the Harry Potter books get on that…like now!

The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck + Get Your Shit Together by Sarah Knight

I put this in the same paragraph because it’s not a series but a series by this author. I bought these books I believe last year because the titles stood out to me. I read one of them when I bought them and never got around to reading the second on. I am also currently feeling like I need to get my life back together and start focusing on what makes me happy and from what I remember of this book it talks about that. I have been feeling a bit unhappy with some stuff in my life and decided it was time to focus on myself and be a bit selfish and make sure that I am happy

You Can Get The Life Changing Magic HERE! You Can Get Get Your Shit Together HERE!

That was my reading list for this fall. What are you guys reading? Would you guys like it if I filmed a bookshelf tour? If you have read or like any of these books I would love to know! If you want to read along with me for any of these books I would love to know. I think that would be a lot of fun. We can even make a hashtag or something cheesy like that haha.

I will see you guys tomorrow.

My Monthly Loves / September 2018 // Blogtober Day #2

Hey everyone!

It’s already the beginning of October. I can’t believe it. It feels like the month flew by. Since it’s the end of the month, everyone knows what time it is. The flood of monthly favourites are coming out. I have to admit I don’t have many favourites this month. I have been sick a lot and not really doing anything it seems like. Does anyone else get that way? If you’re not feeling well you kind of just don’t really do anything with your life? You just watch Netflix or YouTube all day? Just me?

I don’t have a lot of physical things this month I realized as I was prepping this post. I also only have 4 things to share with you guys. Sorry 😦

1.Bob’s Burgers


I’m pretty sure last month I talked about Archer. This month I am coming back with another adult cartoon. I have had a thing lately with adult cartoons. Bob’s Burgers is just easy to put on while I’m doing something else or just trying to fall asleep. I don’t know what I like so much about it but it just keeps me entertained. I’ve already watched 3 seasons. I find the characters relatable and funny. There’s something about it that reminds me of exaggerated versions of people I know. I recommend it if you’re into adult cartoon humour.

2. Fall Candles


I bought these so early in September. I got them from Winners for 3,99$ each. They got me so excited for fall. I’ve been burning them so much not only for how good they smell but also the atmosphere they give off. Both my boyfriend and I like the lighting candles give during the evening in our room. Also, our place traps smells so badly and I hate Febreze. I feel like it’s too strong and I have a hard time breathing when it’s sprayed. So candles help a lot. Winners is a fantastic place to get seasonal candles. I will be picking up more soon.

3. Tati Westbrook


So I started watching Tati on YouTube this month. I think I just binge watch people for a month straight. I’ve done it with so many channels. For someone who is horrendous at makeup, I love to watch beauty gurus. I was also looking for new people to watch because I was over the drama that surrounds the beauty community. I found Tati and loved how drama free she is. I also love that she’s not about promo codes. She uses a lot of affordable makeup. Honestly, she is a breath of fresh air.

4. Tumblr

I am back on Tumblr! I have a Tumblr dedicated to fitness. Since my post about feeling a bit insecure about my physical appearance, you can read that post here, I decided to try and create more healthy changes in my life. I use my Tumblr to motivate myself.  I get food and workout ideas. I also love the community. You just have to be careful with the eating disorder triggering things on Tumblr. There is an awesome healthy community though if you’re just looking for that push. You can follow me at

So that is what I’ve been loving. What have you guys been loving? Have you guys ever liked anything I’ve mentioned in this post? I would love to know!

Let’s Talk About Addiction – Day #25

Hey everyone!

I was not planning on writing this post at all during July but in light of Demi Lovato’s overdose, I thought it would be important to talk about. I feel like addiction is a very hard topic and maybe even taboo.

I am not a huge fan of Demi Lovato I will state that first. After she came out with her whole Stay Strong campaign something was just off for me. I just felt like it was not completely genuine. After her documentary, Simply Complicated came out my suspicions were proven right. She said so herself that she was not ready to get sober.

So how does this relate to me? I have seen addiction first hand. I know what addiction looks like. I know how it lies and manipulates. So that is how I saw the warning signs in Demi. Now, I’m not saying am an export or a fortune teller but I had a feeling.

I think this blog post really manifested and needed to be written due to my anger. I have been so angry and just all around annoyed with how Demi’s overdose has been treated. Suddenly every artist under the sun no matter how famous has been Tweeting and Instagraming and Snapchating wherever they can get some clout have been saying “Addiction isn’t a choice!!”

Why does that annoy me? Well, us normal people aren’t allowed to say that addiction isn’t a choice. We are expected to pay for the consequences of addiction. Being labelled a bum or even facing jail time is left for people who aren’t part of the 1%.

Now, I’m not trying to be an activist or anything. I’m just slightly frustrated with the fact that being rich excuses you from your own demons. I just don’t agree with the statement “addiction isn’t a choice!!” with the sole reason that addicts know what they are addicted to. Addicts know when they are going on a bender, they know when they are giving in and that is, in fact, a choice.

Anyways, I think I will just leave this here. This is my mini-rant about everything that has been going on lately. It’s like you can’t get away from it either. I would like to know what your thoughts are. Do you know someone that has suffered from addiction? Do you feel like this situation doesn’t deserve as much attention as it’s getting? Let me know!

My Summer Vacay Reading List – Day #3

Hey everyone!
It’s back! Back again…guess who’s back? Tell a friend! haha! No, but really I am bringing back one of my most popular blog posts back in the day, My Get Away Reading List! I love reading as much do and I especially love bringing a nice new light-hearted book out on vacation with me.


So today, I will be sharing the books I will be reading during my summer vacation this year. I really wanted to bring back the theme of fun, romantic and summer literature. Now, I don’t think I did the best job with the summer part but I assure you guys this will all be some easy light reading.

After by Anna Todd

What started off as a fanfiction is now a full-on book! I know, I know, I am late to the party with this one. Truth be told I have owned this book since it came out. I just haven’t had the time or the right occasion to read it. (P.S I read the FanFiction so I kinda know what happens) I like a good romance book when I go away. I don’t know what it is but summer vacation and romance just clicks for me.



The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

Can you believe that I got this book for 1$? I know! I found it at my local thrift shop and I just couldn’t leave without it. The Devil Wears Prada is one of my favourite movies of all time and when I say all time, I mean all time. I want to be a fashion journalist one day and it was pretty much my dream coming true. Except for the fact that I actually do want to work for Vogue and I do know a thing or two about fashion. I thought this would be a good book to pick up when I’m out on the beach just thinking about my future. Again something about the summer and dreaming is also something that just feels right to me.



The Greek Escape By Karen Swan

I got this book at Walmart. I was just browsing and it caught my eye. I was like “I need this!” The book just screamed summer reading list just by its cover. A story about running off with a mysterious man to Greece to look at expensive houses plus a mystery count me in. This is also an adult novel. This is the second one on the list and there is a reason behind it. I’m trying to read more adult literature now that I’m turning 20. I just feel like it’s time to read some more writing I can relate too. I just knew this would be the perfect thing for me while I chill by the pool.

90887807-BB32-4B91-989E-90AD95447C2B (1)


I know it’s not that big of a list but I did want to be realistic. I know I won’t be able to finish all these in a week. I just like when I have options especially when I’m reading a slow part of a book. I like to bounce around with how I’m feeling. It’s also been a bit since I really read. I just feel like when I go on vacation that is when I catch up on a lot of my reading.

Well, I’d love to know what you guys are planning on reading this summer or if you have read any of these books. If you have I would love to know what you think of them. I’ll see you guys all tomorrow.

My May Goals – Do More of What You Love

Hey everyone!

May is finally here! If you guys haven’t noticed, I prefer warm weather over the miserable Canadian winter. I feel like May is going to be a very motivating month. I think the change in weather and the sunshine is really going to help kick my butt into gear.

I really wanted to talk about my May goals with you guys. I didn’t really set anything in stone this month. I just wanted to have some general goals for the month.

I really want to dedicate more time to making better blog posts for you guys. I know I have been posting consistently for 3 months now but I don’t feel like my content is as good as it can be. As much as it is nice to say that I haven’t gone off schedule, if the content isn’t good it’s not really worth it. I feel like I haven’t made the posts I’ve been wanting to or YouTube videos for that matter.

I have a feeling this was because I was trying to juggle too much at once and I wasn’t able to put my 110% into anything. Everything I did slacked a bit. I’m hoping that with school being done and the only plans for this summer is work, I’ll be able to give more time to what I really want to do.

I had this big goal to get my blog and YouTube page to 100 followers/subscribers by June. I don’t think I will be able to reach that goal because I have not been able to give the time to hustle everything. As much as it was a nice goal I’m very far behind on both platforms to reach it. I’m not saying it’s impossible because I have not given up and I will try my hardest but it may not be realistic. (If you haven’t subscribed to my YouTube channel I highly suggest you all do. I promise really cool videos are coming.)

I think all around May is going to be a month of growing Collecting Glitter. I’ve never been so dedicated to a brand. I have given up a lot of blogs in the past but now I’m pushing forward and doing what I want to do.

Have you guys also felt like your life has been in the way of making the content you want to create? I would love to hear from you guys about trying to grow your platforms? I will see you guys soon!

Earth Day 2018 – 18 Things You Need to Start Doing Now

Happy Earth Day everyone!! Today is a very important day that we need to take more seriously. Global warming is happening we are the only thing that can save our Earth. I made of list of 18 things you need to start doing now. With no further ado the list:

Let’s End the consumption of plastic

  • Platic is ending up in our oceans so quickly there’s an island made entirely of trash. This should make you made and if it doesn’t you aren’t listening. Plastic is a huge polluter and is destroying our environment. Animals are eating plastic killing them. Stop buying things that are made of plastic or wrapped in plastic. Take a stand and demand companies use less plastic. If you do purchase plastic make sure it’s disposed of properly.


Let’s stop eating meat and other things that pollute the earth

  • As much as people don’t want to be told they should stop eating meat, it’s true. The production of meat is one of the biggest pollution culprits. The amount of water wasted just to take care of these mass produced animals is horrific. The mass production of animals also has devastating effects on the planet let alone your health. We also over fish our sealife leaving certain species unable to repopulate. It’s time to start thinking of eating less meat.

Let’s take care of our environment

  • I remember last year there was an article that went up saying that the Great Barrier Reef was officially completely dead. I had never been so scared. The Great Barrier Reed, the Amazon and many other natural features of this earth are slowly dying because we don’t take care of them. The Amazon keeps getting torn down (for the production of meat by the way) and the Great Barrier Reef is almost dead. A lot of wildlife depend on these places existing and people stopped caring.

Let’s shop locally and start upcycling

  • Stop buying from large companies, they do not have the environment in mind. They are using children in poor countries and tearing down forests for their own gain. When you buy from a large chain you are giving money to the CEO to fly their private jet on vacation when you buy from local companies you are helping a family eat that week. Always support your local stores and vendors. Also, buy things second hand and donate. This helps so much in diminishing the amount of waste.


Let’s take a walk

  • Stop driving places that are 5 minutes away. Take the 20 minutes to walk there. You won’t be wasting gas and polluting the environment and you will get some good exercise in. Walking or taking your bike is always the best way to go. If you can walk there don’t take the car out.

Let’s stop wasting water

  • Take fewer baths and shorter showers are always the top thing recommended it. If that doesn’t interest you just turn off the faucet when you’re brushing your teeth. Also, make sure nothing is leaking in your house, that can waste gallons of water. Like mentioned earlier eat less meat. It is predicted that we will run out of drinking water. Don’t be someone that helps that come earlier than it has to.

Let’s pull out those recycling and compost bins

  • Recycle everything you can. If it doesn’t have to be thrown out reuse it. Don’t throw food in the trash but rather in the compost. I don’t even think I have to explain why you should recycle and compost. I think this is on the of the more obvious things you should do.


Let’s get involved

  • Join a local or worldwide organization that is fighting for our environment. Also, a lot of organizations like Greenpeace are very active on social media, make sure to see what they are up to. Just staying up to date on what these groups are doing keeps you aware. If they are doing something local always get involved. Sometimes you have to boycott companies or plant trees but it’s worth it.

Let’s turn those lights off

  • When you are leaving your home for the day make sure the lights are off. It’s a waste of energy and can break the budget. Another good tip is to change your light bulbs to energy efficient ones. Light bulbs release heat that can make the home warmer causing the air conditioning to go up. It’s important to keep all these things down.

Let’s bring our bags to the supermarket

  • I live in Montreal where a law passed that companies will no longer be allowed to give out plastic bags you have to bring your reusable bags. Like mentioned earlier plastic is horrible for the environment. So stop getting them at the supermarket and just bring your own bags. Bringing your own bags reduces the amount of plastic you are using. You can even get your own fruit and veggie bags so you don’t have to use the plastic ones. If you live in Canada like I do it saves you the 5 cents per bag you have to pay for the plastic ones.

Let’s use our local transit

  • Local transit is there for a reason. Using a bus or train saves however many people can fit on a bus from driving their own care. That makes a huge impact at the end of the day when it comes to gas emissions. If you can try and see what your area offers in terms of local transit. I use the bus every day instead of buying my own car. I am lucky to live in an area that allows me to do that. If you don’t need a car, don’t use one.


Let’s make a garden

  •  Grow some of your own food so you don’t buy them from large chains. This helps save money and the environment. Creating more plants helps with H2O emissions. It all falls back on not buying from large corporations that do some very un-eco-friendly things to get their fruits and veggies. Also buying produce locally or having your own means less travel for the food. They don’t have to cross oceans on boats or fly in planes or travel by truck. That means less carbon footprint.

Let’s plant some trees

  • Much like the last point, plant some trees. It’s not that hard to buy some trees and put them in your backyard. Maybe you want some more privacy instead of buying a plastic fence put in some plants. There are also a bunch of groups that go out and plant trees. The more trees are cut the down the less H2O we have. It’s important to replace what is being taken down. If you can do your part, you should for sure try.

Let’s not waste food

  • A lot of food is thrown out every year for no other reason than it doesn’t look pretty. Food that is either too small, too big, ugly, etc is wasted. There are programs to collect that food and sell it at a reduced price. At least it won’t be thrown out. It’s better to buy things that don’t look how they should but taste the same than throwing it out. I do know the store I work for does sell “ugly” fruit and veggies at a reduced price. More places should be doing this. If you’re interested I really suggest taking a look at They send boxes full of reject food to you. You get to choose how much you want. It’s different every week. Unfourtanitly, there are no similar companies here in Canada, which makes me really upset.


Let’s check the ingredients in our makeup

  • Natural makeup is becoming more and more popular with more people wanting to know what is in their makeup. There are a lot of toxic ingredients that can be found in makeup that is bad for you and the environment. If you can’t read the ingredients it’s probably not great for you. Palm oil can be found in a lot of makeup products. To get palm oil a lot of orangutans, elephants and rhinos are affected by this.

Let’s stop overconsuming

  • Overconsumption is one of the biggest things North America and Europe is plagued with. We just keep buying. Overconsumption is bad for our environment. It’s time we stop buying things we don’t need just to fit in. You don’t need those things and they always end up laying around when they aren’t cool anymore. We have a problem with things like clothing and interior design going out of trend as quickly as in comes in. Don’t fall into the trap.

Let’s say no to junk mail

  • Say no to junk mail. Just call up the companies that are sending the mail to you and say you don’t want it anymore. There are also a few companies that help to get junk mail to stop being sent to your place. Junk mail is a waste of paper and gas to be sent to your place. It’s one way to cut down on your paper use and carbon footprint. If you can junk mail to stop showing up at your door I highly recommend it. Also if you can switch some of your mail, like bank statements, to online it will change your life.


Let’s reuse those batteries

  • Last but not least buy reusable batteries. This is something I have switched too and I didn’t really know why. All the environmental activists were telling us to switch so I did. I then did my research to see what the real reason behind the switch. There are chemicals in batteries that are very toxic, a widely known fact. When you just throw out batteries in the trash those batteries break and can end up in our water and in the ground. It poisons the earth. So it’s better to get batteries that can be recharged so you don’t have to throw them out.


So here are 18 things you guys need to do now to save the environment. I would love to hear any other suggestions you guys have or what you guys are doing to save the environment.

Top 5 Tips for What to Do When You’re Sick

Hey everyone!

I decided to make this post because I have just started to get over this cold/flu that I had. I was super sick for the last couple days. I really took a break and tried to focus on getting better. I wanted to share with you guys my best tips for getting over a cold. This is the first time in my adult life I think that I have been this sick. It was a bit scary at times and I wanted to share everything I’ve learned so you guys are prepared. If you guys are facing a cold right now then I hope you start feeling better soon. If you just stumbled on this post hoping you won’t get sick anytime soon, I wish you so much luck you have no idea.

1. It’s okay to take time off

This is something I have a hard time with. I feel like when I take days off I am abandoning my responsibilities. I ended up not going to work two days in a row and missing one day of school. I have never taken off that many days in a row. I usually am the type that will give myself a day and then force myself to get back to real life. This time I knew I had to do what was right for my body. I didn’t have enough energy to be doing anything other than being in bed watching Netflix. I am here giving you permission to take off as many days as you need. I was actually overwhelmingly surprised with how much my job and teachers were understanding. I told them that I was really sick and not doing well and they just all told me to take the time I need to get better. I even took the week off from making Youtube videos. I just knew I didn’t have the energy to put into them that I usually would. I rather take the time to heal my body rather than force myself to get things done and risk getting sicker.

2. Drink lots of water

This may seem really strange for some but drink a lot of water. When I was sick I became very dehydrated very quickly. The leaky nose was taking up all my fluids it seemed like. If you are throwing up this is also a very important step. Your body needs to stay hydrated if it doesn’t it can make you sicker. I know a lot of people hate water for whatever reason. (I really like it) Drink warm tea can help if you don’t like water. I was not drinking water for a bit or eating so I had to force myself to drink water. The hydration gave me that little bit of energy I needed and kept my temperature down. I am no doctor so I can’t tell you if this is actually a medical recommendation but it did work for me. Also drinking water can’t do any harm so it’s worth a shot if you feel like you aren’t doing too hot.

3. See a doctor

Now I didn’t end up going to the doctor so, do what I say not what I do. It’s worth the trip to the doctors sometimes. They can give you prescriptions that will make things better a lot quicker than Tylenol. I know seeing a doctor is not a luxury everyone has. I do recommend it though if you have that option. I didn’t go because I really didn’t feel like sitting in the clinic for hours waiting. Here in Canada, yes the health care is free, but it’s not exactly quick or on demand. I would have for sure gone if I felt like I couldn’t handle it anymore or if I really felt like I needed medical assistance. You can feel when your body needs help, listen to it. Unless you’re a doctor there is only so much you can do by yourself. Ask help from the people who know what they are doing. The flu can kill you. (Not to scare anyone) Yes, people die every year from the flu, mostly children and the elderly. According to CNN you are more likely to die of the common flu if you have pre-existing conditions like heart disease, lung disease or diabetes. The flu can result in pneumonia or sepsis. Just be aware of how you are feeling and don’t let a small cough mutate into something deadly.

4. Take your medication

Even if it just Tylenol take the medication it helps. Even if a lot of my symptoms were not “cured’ by unprescribed medication at least one of the ones that made me the most uncomfortable went away, my headache. My sinuses and ears were infected which caused me to get very bad headaches. The pressure of the stuffed nose and blocked ears would cause my head to be in searing pain. I was all up in my room like Harry Potter holding his scar. The best thing that I did was take my Advil, Tylenol, generic brand pain reliever to get rid of that headache. It makes everything else more manageable. It’s easy to forget or feel like it’s not worth it but honestly, just do it. I know there are people who don’t believe in medication, that’s okay. You don’t have to take this tip but it really did help me.

5. Sleep

Get your rest. I slept all day and I didn’t feel guilty. It felt so good to just sleep. That could also be because I don’t usually get the right amount of sleep so I’m always exhausted but I was so happy. I do find that I am more tired when I’m sick. Just today when I had to wake up for school I got the same amount of sleep I usually do but I was just so tired. I felt like I needed to sleep another few hours. Your body needs the rest so that it can heal itself don’t deprive it of that. You will need extra hours of sleep when you’re sick because your energy will be down. Go to bed earlier than usual or make sure that you will get at least 9 hours of sleep. I was sleeping like 15 hours of the days I stayed home. That was probably an overkill but that’s what my body needed to heal itself. Listen to your body!!

These are my top 5 tips for what to do when you’re sick. If any of these tips helped you make sure to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you guys. Also, if you have any of your own suggestions I would love to here. I am open to whatever so I can get over this cold.
